SafeMinds Applauds Action By House To Protect Children From Neurotoxin:New Legislation Comes on Heels of CDC Admission to Lack of Proper Planning, Despite Research and Warnings

Washington, D.C.- SafeMinds-America’s leading scientific organization
investigating the risks that mercury-containing medical products pose to our
children-joins NoMercury.org and the Mercury Policy Project in applauding
the introduction of HR 4169 by U.S. Reps. Dave Weldon, M.D. (R-Fla.) and
Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y), a bipartisan bill that would remove vaccines that
contain Thimerosal mercury from the market.

“We are very grateful to Dr. Weldon and Congresswoman Maloney for
introducing this bill, which will take the necessary steps to protect our
children from mercury-containing vaccines,” said Lyn Redwood, RN, MSN, NP,
president of SafeMinds. “It has been our long-held fear that our federal
health agencies lack the desire or will to fulfill their duty in this
matter, and the recent testimony of the CDC before the U.S. House appears to
have confirmed that belief.”

The introduction of this new bill and Redwood’s comments come in response to
testimony by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
director to the House Committee on Appropriations where Dr. Julie Louise
Gerberding openly testified to the agency’s continued lack of planning and
action regarding certain vaccines that contain mercury.

“In 1999 and 2001 the FDA and IOM (respectively) urged manufacturers to
remove thimerosal from infant vaccines and that children and pregnant women
avoid thimerosal,” said Michael Bender, Director of the Mercury Policy
Project. “The CDC should not be trying to roll back the clock and keep
America’s children vulnerable to mercury.”

“Five years of CDC, FDA, EPA and NIH inaction in the face of scientific
evidence detailing the dangers mercury poses to our children, has forced
Congress to step in because these agencies have failed to fulfill their
obligation to prevent further damage to our children,” stated Alan Clark,
M.D., of the Missouri-based NoMercury.org.

“SafeMinds plans on making its scientific research on this matter available
to interested members of Congress so they can be fully educated on this bill
and the dangers with Thimerosal (mercury),” offered Redwood. “Frankly, it
should have been a no-brainer decision to stop injecting our infants with a
lethal toxic chemical, but apparently it wasn’t to the CDC.”
